They are real – then confessed the actor quoted by the TMZ portal. He added that he felt remorse.
On Wednesday, the announcement was released that CK is returning to live performances. There are 30 cities on his US tour list. The first show is scheduled for August 13 at Madison Square Garden, and the final is scheduled for December 11 in Boston.

Lous CK is counting on a second chance
Since his sex scandal erupted, Louis CK gave several stand-ups at New York City clubs in late 2018, but has faced protests. In 2019, the “hero” of the sex scandal performed, among others, at the Polish Theater in Warsaw and the Kijów cinema in Krakow. Several popular comedians – including Dave Chapelle and Chris Rock – have endorsed his right to a second chance.
